while up at the farm in vermont i had access to a welder and decided to make some foot pegs. Unfortunatley i wasnt able to take pictures of the fabrication but thought id let everyone see how they came out.
tools and materials:
- steel tube (think its about 1". just what was lying around, not sure)
- 2 5/8 bolt about 3" long and nuts (again what was lying around)
- 2 large washers
- band saw (or hack saw)
- spray paint
To start i cut 2 pieces of steel tube out about 7" long each.
Next i drilled a hole slighty bigger than the bolt in each piece. I drilled about a quarter inch off the edge all the way through the pipe.
I then put the bolt in the hole with just a tiny bit sticking out the other side (maybe an 1/8 of an inch) and welded the bolt to the pipe on both sides.
Next i put the bolt throught the hinch and checked the fit against the body and grinded the edge of the pipe till it was a perfect fit.
On the other side i welded a large washer to the end of the pipe just to keep my foot from sliding off the edge.
Finally i rattle canned the whole peg in primer and then black paint to prevent rust.
Bolt on and enjoy!
(p.s. excuse the dirty jeep, hadnt had a chance to clean her)
